“To convey a sense of wonder of the movement of within the very heart of things. Even the humblest clay pot is ultimately made up of molecules and, at the heart of these, the particles dance.”
The mobiles may have begun as a playful conceit (mobile still life) when Jenny suspended mesh models of pots on wire hangers, and made them turn. But her focus remained the mystery of matter. Working with wire and mesh allowed her to show ‘perception of the form as whole and their underlying structures’. After actual pots she modelled their underlying geometry. The last and most complicated look to the sky and Universe but always, channelling Arte Povera, are made only from wire, mesh, paper and occasionally found objects.
All the mobiles on this page come from the studio or family members. Some titles come from the Artist’s photographs, but most are unknown. All were made between 1997 and 2016 but only a few can be dated precisely.
